Our HorsesWe have a good selection of beautiful horses and ponies, chosen specifically for their experience, safety and temperament. Some have been with our group for many years and others have recently been kindly gifted to us. The life for a horse within the RDA is the perfect retirement package, performing light duties and being expertly cared for by our dedicated staff and volunteers.
We need the funds to keep our stars fed, vetted and shod throughout the year. Your donations make this happen, however small are greatly appreciated. If you would like to sponsor one of our horses or ponies please look at our Support a Pony scheme. You can find more pictures of your favourite in our Horse and Pony Gallery
